Astoria "Lounge" Prosecco

 

DOUBLE GOLD MEDAL
Jerry D. Mead's New World International Wine Competition 2014


Astoria "Lounge" Prosecco

 

Platinum Award Winner - 93 points
"This indisputably delicious Prosecco shows very expressive fruit recalling fresh stone fruit notes akin to peaches and apricots, with very pleasant sweetness that seems to flow directly from the fruit flavors rather than sugar. The effervescence is delicate in texture but still sufficiently energetic to lift the wine’s notable sweetness, inviting sip after sip."

Vineyard & Winemaking Notes

The fruit is sourced from the Astoria Estate vineyard “Val de Brun” in the rolling hills of Veneto just north of Venice. The vineyards are oriented north-south and west-east with 4,500 vines per hectare, with an average vine age of 12-years-old. The grapes are harvested by hand in small lots. A soft pressing occurs and the juice is placed in stainless steel tanks for a brief cold maceration. Before the primary fermentation process is concluded, the wine is run into a pressurized tank where a secondary fermentation takes place allowing it to become a sparkling wine. After bottling the wine is bottle aged for over 6 weeks before being released.
